Dr. D. Ross Camidge is a tenured professor in the division of medical oncology and serves as the director of the thoracic oncology clinical program and the program director for the CU Senior Thoracic Oncology Clinical and Translational Research Fellowship at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. He is also a practicing medical oncologist at the UCHealth Lung Cancer Clinic located on the Anschutz Medical Campus. Dr. Camidge joined the University of Colorado as a full-time faculty member in October of 2007 after having served as a visiting professor at the university for two years prior. In 2015, he became the first Joyce Zeff Chair in Lung Cancer Research at the University of Colorado Cancer Center. Dr. Camidge has been described by the Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation as “one of the leading minds in lung cancer.”

Dr. Camidge has a particular interest in developmental therapeutics through phase 1 studies. He serves as the principal investigator on numerous trials, both on the national and international level, that are funded either directly by the pharmaceutical industry or through industry-related grants. He is an advocate for lung cancer patients attaining the latest drugs available via clinical trials and much of his research focuses on the optimization of new agents by means of personalized medicine—identifying the mechanisms driving a cancer and then tailoring the drug therapy to that specific cancer’s genetic makeup. Dr. Camidge has authored or co-authored over 150 articles published in peer-reviewed, scientific journals around novel therapies and thoracic malignancies.
